Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week...
- Describe one of your reading habits.
- Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you choose that/those book(s).
- What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
- Tell us what you're reading right now – what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren't) enjoying.
- Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
- Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books – let's hear it, then!
This Monday is a ramble about indie books.
I love indie books, believe me I do, but something that really bothers me is the poor editing that some of them have. I know that in the process of producing an indie book there may not be money or resources to get someone to edit your book, but some indie books I read have very simple grammatical or spelling errors.
I've seen multiple spellings of to (to, too, two) in the same paragraph which just makes me cringe. I've also seen alternating tenses within the same page, which makes a story very confusing. Also, when an author doesn't tell who is speaking I get so confused. When this happens sometimes I have to go back several pages to figure out who was speaking last.
Sometimes I think that indie books and authors should have more reviewers when the book is in it's early stages so that it can be the best book it possible can be.
